SILO Redevelopment

Are you aware that the SILO climate database has been redeveloped. The new system is now available for use. Some benefits of the new system:
• all datasets are now free of charge (supported by the Queensland Government’s Open Data initiative)
• data can now be distributed as they are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 licence
• users can now download gridded data (data are in NetCDF format). Please see the new web site for more information about accessing the gridded data.
• the new web interface is much easier to use than the old interface
• the new Application Programming Interface (API) enables users to query the amount of observed data available at each station
• patched point datasets are available at nearly all (18,700) stations (previously patched datasets were only available at a modest subset of the stations)

The APSIM SILO mirror based out of Toowoomba will stop working soon. You will need to switch the new SILO climate database as soon as possible.

You can find the SILO Getting Started Guide in the Technical documentation section of http://www.apsim.info/Documentation.aspx

Global agricultural systems modelling community convening in Berlin

Author: Chris Murphy/Tuesday, 19 January 2016/Categories: Features

In March 2016, agricultural systems modellers will meet in Berlin, Germany, for an international symposium, coordinated by scientists from Germany, Finland, Australia and the USA. The agricultural systems modelling network spans the whole globe and more than 300 participants are expected to show up for the event, organized by the Leibniz Centre of Agricultural Landscape Research in Müncheberg, Germany. Crop models have developed into indispensable tools in the ongoing discussion on global food security, but only their consistent application through global co-operation assures their usefulness and credibility at the interfaces of agronomy with economics and in informing policy-making. Additional details can be found on the symposium flyer or website www.icropm2016.org.

Simulation models for the growth and development of crops have become very popular, especially in the context of climate change impact assessments. But they are also widely used in other fields of agronomy. Agronomists apply models to investigate how present and future climate, different existing and new cultivars and alternative soil and crop management practices will affect the yields, water use and other outputs of crops and how that affects food security and the environment at various levels – from farm to global.
